Posted on 12/31/2013 6:40:19 AM PST by Carbonsteel
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry offered an apology to the Romney family on Tuesday after a panel on her show mocked the fact that one of Mitt Romney's grandchildren was black.
On Sunday's "Melissa Harris-Perry" show, Harris-Perry led a panel in discussing the "Photos of the Year," which included a Romney family Christmas photo. In the photo, Romney is seen holding his adopted grandchild, Kieran, who is black.

Melissa sees racism in EVERYTHING.
If a FoxNews commentator or even a Fox guest had said or done something like this, Melissa would have had a complete meltdown!
Sick of apologies from these godless folk. They have no moral code, no ethics, no professionalism and no indication of intelligence.
All of the commentators on MSNBC are in a competition to be the biggest race pimp. Melissa is winning.
She needs to be fired.
Yet another goofy “apology” to throw in the “apology dumpster”. The damage has been done. Time to “apologize.” What a crock.
No, I think we need insist these libs do the honorable thing, either by sword or gun.
Can someone please post her actual apology that she tweeted? The article does not show it.
The blacks on msnbc- occupation-Negro.
"...without reservation or qualification..."
As apologies from leftists go, I think this one is pretty good.
one more reason to detest SOCIALISTS. They are evil.
I am sicked and tired of lefties.
I really do not care.
One far left liberal attacked another.
Give them each a flamethrower and a box of grenades. Let them fight it out in a concrete basement.
The world will be a better place.
Beat someone to a pulp,mock them and then say oops,I’m so sorry.
Stop watching MSNBC
Stop talking about MSNBC
Stop linking to MSNBC
Stop buying the products of those who advertise on MSNBC.
Ignore them. Look at ‘progressive radio’. No support, no show.
A fake apology from a network no one watches.
Why was race the first thing she saw in the photo? She really needs to do some soul-searching, assuming there’s a soul in there.
If they don’t do that sh*t in the first place, they wouldn’t feel they HAVE to apologize......
What does it matter these idiots are the racist one and always have been run by a bunch of queers that do not care who they hurt unless it is a democrat..
I am almost sure Romney’s could care less what these idiots have to say after all with a viewing audience of about 10 they will say anything
MSNBC deserves the rock bottom ratings they've achieved.
Liberal [racist] takes a dump in the punch bowl and then says she’s sorry you don’t like how she improved your recipe for punch.
That’s a liberal apology. And what it is worth. About as much as a turd in your punch bowl.
Probably the standard, “Sorry if anyone was offended” non-apology.
She made the statement on air.
Apologize on air.
Not that I think there is anything heartfelt in her apology.
I am sorry. Without reservation or qualification. I apologize to the Romney family.
I work by guiding principle that those who offend do not have the right to tell those they hurt that they r wrong for hurting.
Therefore, while I meant no offense, I want to immediately apologize to the Romney family for hurting them.
As black child born into large white Mormon family I feel familiarity w/ Romney family pic & never meant to suggest otherwise.
I apologize to all families built on loving transracial adoptions who feel I degraded their lives or choices.
How come she doesn’t lose her job??
Somebody must be watching. Every day there is some scandalous report about them.
"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things." -Phil. 4:8
I more or less think of the left as unhinged these days. They’ve lost perspective. They aren’t just anti-Conservative. They’ve actually devolved to vile creatures that are incapable of reigning themselves in. They have no morals and no self control.
How do you justify going after a family that chose to adopt a child, and how do you go after the child as well?
These people are just evil. They are so far gone that they can’t keep from doing this sort of thing. And if they should be motivated by something or someone to apologize for their actions here, it won’t dawn on them at all, that this is merely the tip of the iceberg, and that across the board their thinking is so depraved, that they need to turn their whole lives around.
I can’t watch their shows. The sickness is so prominent, and the damage they are doing is so evident, that it’s just self-destructive to expose your mind to it.
There’s no value in looking in the toilet to observe. You just flush.
Are you freakin' kidding me? For real? She said that?
MSNBC sure is doing a lot of apologizing lately.
satan apologizes to keep his minions under control.
Hey, don’t fall into the liberal way of speech suppression. Speak against her, rebut her, mock her, but let her speak.
This whole thing of losing your job over speech is what the liberals do, because they’re weak. Let’s not be weak.
Yes. 8:26 a.m. today.
We have a winner, one liberal attacking another liberal, great sport.
NONE of the ‘apologies’ coming from the left are sincere...they just do it until the ‘heat’ is off...’crackers’ are so gullible.
Dallas Tea Party Group Destroys Olbermann and MSNBC on Diversity
We have more diversity on our three-person steering committee than your entire TV network line-up.
MSNBC has the biggest collection of losers in the media world it needs to change name to LU Losers United.
Funny thing is that the adoptee is probably blacker than the “lyin’ king” by, say, 50%.
She apologizes for ‘hurting’ the Romney family. I think she wrongly assumes that the Romney family gives a damn about what she says or does.

Liberals are insincere and liars by nature. They intentionally attack and insult conservatives and their families knowing that all they have to do later is “apologize”. Their insults are sincere, their apologies are lies.
Which god? Mormonism is a polytheistic cult. I'm sure the child will have all the material advantages money can buy, such as learning to speak proper English and be as educated as his intellect will take him.
On the other hand, if he follows all the tenants of mormonism, all his life, he is most certainly hell bound. You can like it or not, flame me or not. If one doesn't accept the Lord and Savior (and there's only one), one is hell bound.
I didn't make the rules or judge anyone, you may look it up, it's in the book (there's only one book, authored by the living God and it's not the book of mormon).
Yeah, and where do you think Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are on that obviously racist attack?
She should have been fired and blackballed for it — after being required to make an on-air apology. A Twitter “apology” is bullshit.
“I am sorry. Without reservation or qualification. I apologize to the Romney family.”
And this poor child will be met with the "soft bigotry" from mormon children whose grandparents will still believe in the "mark of Cain" curse. The Romney name will not protect him in the long run.
You are correct
Dontja just love when people apologize on twitter using their own hashtag, kinda like an apology with ‘air quotes’
gods-fearing family would be a more accurate term (polytheistic)
And it came to pass that I beheld, after they had dwindled in unbelief they became a dark and loathsome, and a filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi 12:23).
At the time the devil was cast out of heaven, there were some spirits that did not know who had authority, whether God or the devil. They consequently did not take a very active part on either side, but rather thought the devil had been abused, . . . These spirits were not considered bad enough to be cast down to hell, and never have bodies; neither were they considered worthy of an honourable body on this earth: . . . But those spirits in heaven that rather lent an influence to the devil, thinking he had a little the best right to govern, but did not take a very active part any way were required to come into the world and take bodies in the accursed lineage of Canaan; and hence the Negro or African race. Speech of Elder Orson Hyde, delivered before the High Priests' Quorum, in Nauvoo, April 27, 1845, printed by John Taylor, p. 30)
Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so. President Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, 10:110, March 8, 1863).
Wait until the child learns to read and comprehend Mormon scripture and discovers that he is inferior because, as a spirit in the dawn of preexistence, he did not fight valiantly on the side of our Lord, and is therefore condemned for time and all eternity to the curse of a dark skin.
